Ted graduated from The University of British Columbia Civil Engineering program in 1983 then worked for two decades with a BC Lower Mainland groundwater resource development and water treatment and distribution sales, service and contracting company.
In 2003 Ted became a senior water engineer with Indigenous Affairs and Northern Development Canada. There he works with BC’s 200 First Nations supporting their 270 community water systems in supplying safe water.
For twenty five years Ted has been a BC Water and Waste Association volunteer, a stint including ten years on the Small Water System committee, eight years on the board, Presidency in 2010, and then American Water Works Association Board Director from 2012-15. Additionally he recently spent five years on the board of innovative water pump start-up company moving from lab through field testing to market.
All these experiences lead Ted to the realization that there were still huge research and application gaps between the various stakeholders supplying safe water to communities. RES’EAU WaterNET provides a unique opportunity to address those gaps and deliver true innovation to small, rural and First Nation communities. Ted is enthusiastically committed to serving the organization.
